About Sketching William.......

About these sketches....I have various techniques for capturing William. Apart from quick pen outlines to remind me of his pose, I will take a photo and work from that. When he stands still long enough, I'll do a complete sketch en plein air ~ All the drawings are things he has done and been up to, good or naughty, all forming a permanent reminder of those little things in life that makes having him so worthwhile. I admit not all the drawings are complete or perfect in any way, but when I originally set out to capture him, I decided they would be fun and to get too hung up on perfection would take away that fun. I hope you enjoy seeing them......ann

    1. The cracker dog moment is that wild moment of craziness that they seem to get, when control flies off out of the window!
      I think it originated back in the late 70's with the TV series All Creatures Great And Small from books by James Herriot, a character in the stories had a little dog who had. 'Cracker dog moment'....somehow everyone knew Exactly what they meant and thereby the phrase stuck.
